We are beyond shocked by this news.
Last week in West Palm Beach, Fl, an 8-year-old boy tried to rob King Food & Meat Bazaar with a loaded gun he stole from his mom.

As seen from surveillance footage, the child traveled to the store via bike, and entered wearing his helmet.
According to authorities, he pulled out the gun, approached a cashier, and demanded money. Luckily, another cashier was able to take the weapon away from him in time.
The gun was loaded, however, no bullets were in the chamber.
The boy's mother, Eboni Alls, believed he was going to the park at the time he committed the crime. She immediately knew he obtained the pistol where she couldn't find it in her purse.
"I'm like it was so light. I'm like I knew I was missing something. I said where's my gun?"
The child was ultimately arrested and is undergoing a mental health evaluation.
We're just glad no one was hurt.
